Lora was murdered by her father Larry Adams on the same night he also murdered her mother Pamela Kay Barr-Songer-Adams, Lora's little life was over before it even began, She was 3 at the time in another week she would have been turned 4 Lora was the sweetest little baby girl just wanted to sit on your lap and get hugs and be loved. She would rather sit on someones lap and get hugs and give hugs then play with the other kids, You are so loved and missed little Lora Marie. When your mother told me she would be naming you after me I cried HAPPY TEARS and could not wait for you to be born. Little baby girl you were in our lives for just a very short time you will be forever missed, Missed in every moment of every day you are loved sweet girl.----News Paper Clipping of the murders-----Larry Adams, was given a death sentence for not only killing his three-year-old daughter Lora, but also Lora's mother, Pamela, during a violent fight. On June 23, 1984, he shot her mother twice with one handgun and five times with another one before shooting Lora in the forehead. Lora's autopsy revealed that she had been looking at her father when he shot her due to gunpowder residue in her eyes. Near midnight on June 23, 1984, Adams' estranged wife, Pamela, and three year-old daughter, Laura, were shot and killed in their home on Avondale Avenue in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the days that followed, the police questioned Adams, but were unable to connect him to the murders. Shortly thereafter, Adams relocated to California. Several months later, however, the Nevada police were informed that Adams had reportedly boasted about the killings to acquaintances while living in Sacramento. Adams was arrested and charged with burglary and two counts of first-degree murder with use of a deadly weapon.--- End of News Paper Clipping--- The news paper did not print what Larry Adams was BRAGGING about to others on the the murders he committed. It came out in court He was bragging telling people that the big b_ _ch was hard to kill he had to use 2 guns and shoot her 7 times but the little b_ _ch was easy, one shot between the eye's what a MONSTER can not be human he got the death penalty but 31 years later 2015 he is still living on this earth. There were 3 other small children in that house that night 1 was his other daughter with Pam and the other 2 were Pam's children they had to live that nightmare and be scared beyond belief something that would be hard for an adult to go through.
